The Vermilionville Living History Museum and Folklife Park relies on annual, tax-deductible memberships and donations to fund its ongoing efforts to offer a living history museum where visitors can see what life was like for the Acadian, Creole and Native American Cultures in the Attakapas region from 1765 to1890.


Vermilionville welcomes more than 50,000 visitors a year from across the world, and hosts more than 30 special events annually geared toward education, music, the environment, and culture, including our weekly Saturday Cajun Jam and Sunday Dance.


Your support helps in the ongoing effort to preserve our history, keeps the museum open for visitors of all ages year round, helps preserve the more than 2,000 artifacts on-site, and so much more.
